Turpentine Babycino release debut single ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’

It’s normal to wallow at home and feel heartbroken post break-up, though the partying phase is always around the corner waiting. Getting lit with your friends, playing music and moving forward fast and loud is how Turpentine Babycino’s ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’ came to be.

When insecurities are heightened post-break-up, it can be easy to dismiss yourself when wrapped up in your own self-doubt and judgment, but forging forward with stubborn resilience can often form the greatest outcomes (and even a great song).

With heavy influences from Blink-182 and Newcastle upstarts Dave The BandTurpentine Babycino have combined the natural connection of Gabriel Argiris (Dave The Band) and singer Georgie Winchester to form a break-up anthem that flowed out naturally during their writing sessions.

Recorded at iconic The Grove Studios (Birds of Tokyo, Violent Soho, DMA’s) with work from Chloe Gill on the production, the track was mixed by ARIA Award Winning producer Paul McKercher (Eskimo Joe, You Am I, Art vs. Science), before being sent to Studio 301 (King Stingray, Thelma Plum, The Rubens) to be mastered.

“Write A Song Sounds Shit’ is about the aftermath of a break-up. Big parties, loud music, long nights and writing shitty break-up songs are often on the cards to help ‘forget’ about an ex. As a song-writer it’s easy to dismiss a great song due to self doubt and judgment and after a break-up, these insecurities are heightened. ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’ is that shitty break-up song that nobody’s supposed to hear, except people will this time.” Turpentine Babycino

“The vocalist and drummer make most of the music together including the track ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’ which stemmed from a riff. The melody and lyrical ideas stemmed from past break-up experiences and the song flowed naturally as if it was meant to be.” Turpentine Babycino

Having spent 2022 sharing stages with Bad Dreems, Northeast Party House, Eliza & The Delusionals, The Screaming Jets, Mia Dyson & many more, Turpentine Babycino are poised and ready to make their first foray interstate, playing both capital city and regional venues in support of ‘Write A Song Sounds Shit’.

Beginning in Melbourne, the band then heads north to Sydney, Wollongong, Port Macquarie, Newcastle & Yamba, before wrapping the tour up on the Gold Coast. Their debut headline tour, the band are eager and ready to excite fans and forge new friendships up & down the East Coast.

“We’re all really excited to hit the road for a whole month and visit these cities on tour, make friends and share our music with an audience who loves a rock show. It’s our first tour together and we will be taking the vans to camp in along the way. We planned it for October so that the weather is warmer and we can surf, skate and visit friends in the day and play music at night. Most excited about the Melbourne show on the 5th Oct at the Retreat Hotel to reunite with old friends, Last Rites bar in Yamba which is a sick venue and of course playing the Hamilton Station in our home town of Newcastle” Turpentine Babycino

With a reputation for bringing loud rock & a punky 90’s fuzz to shows across NSW, Turpentine Babycino are set to capitalize on their demand in Newcastle & across the state, by taking their honest & vulnerable tunes, to stages across Australia, ready to pull audiences everywhere aboard with Turpentine Babycino.
